by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A cold front invades from the northwest with midday rain expected. Southwesterly winds will be gusting towards 30 mph as the frontal boundary passes with the showers. Morning and evening lows in the low 40’s bookend the damp mid 50 midday high.


John Donnelly was born in Hialeah, Florida and moved back to Rhode Island and settled in Johnston, where he grew up until graduating from Lyndon State College in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. As a child John always wanted to know how air moved, and he ran towards, not away from, thunder and lighting and various other ominous weather phenomena. He returned in 2001 to the old family neighborhood of Elmhurst where the McCabe’s, Donnelly’s, Walker’s and Callan’s have been since after the Civil War.
